SSB ops clear down to 7000 kHz on 40m, Grrrr

Regardless of the use of filters, how about the AGC impact of the strong SSB 
signal on the CW copy?  May have to turn off AGC and use the RF gain 

I'm skeptical that this interference would be as easily dismissed as 
suggested - and fully supportative of separate band allocations for SSB that 
guarantee spectrum for CW and other narrowbandwidth digital modes.
